A brand new look & a huge "shop my closet" update!!

Ahem... notice anything... different?  I am absolutely thrilled with this brand new layout that Kate made for me!!  I've been wanting to do a bit of an overhaul for a while now, and the timing finally worked out.  Kate designed my original layout, which was great for when I was first starting out, but I definitely wanted something more personalized.  Amazingly, I pretty much told Kate the bare essentials of what I had in mind (color scheme, aesthetic), and she dreamed up all the rest!  I wanted something that combined a kawaii sensibility with a retro feel, and I think she did a wonderful job at marrying the two.  I'm especially smitten with the header she made; tying in my novelty purse collection into the page navigation was a stroke of genius.  Kate was also kind enough to make new ad buttons for me -- they're on the bottom right if you'd like to grab one!
And speaking of ads... I'd been doing some informal ad swaps and sponsorships for a little while, but I finally decided to start offering advertising opportunities through Passionfruit!  It streamlines the whole experience and takes a lot of the back-and-forth out of the equation.  You can get all the information on my advertising page, but essentially, I'm offering three different sizes of ads to choose from, and all are very affordable.  I'm still a relatively small blog (though I'm still growing, thanks to all of you!), so all of my ads are priced from $5 - $15 per month.  If you have any questions or want to contact me about a sponsorship opportunity (like a giveaway, a product review, a shop feature, etc.), you can always e-mail me.  If you are a small business owner, blogger, or offer a service or product that would fit right in with my girly, kitschy aesthetic, I'd love to work with you!

Finally, I have another piece of news: my "shop my closet" store is open again... with a MASSIVE update in items!  I now have over 65 pieces available for purchase in my shop!  It's been a long time coming, and I know I'll have at least one other big update to do later this summer; I'm really bad at getting rid of things, so I have a huge pile of clothes that I'm not quite ready to part with yet, but I know I will be soon.  I have some fantastic dresses (from brands like ModCloth, Urban Outfitters, Sugarhill Boutique, Trollied Dolly, Anthropologie, ASOS, Forever 21, H&M, and a couple of vintage finds!), plus a bunch of skirts, shorts, jeans, and even some jewelry and shoes up for sale!  In addition, I have a pretty wide range of sizes available (thanks, weight fluctuation!) -- there are lots of mediums and larges, but there are also a few XL pieces that are really great.  Essentially, if you are a US size 6-14, I have some great finds for you!  Here's just a sampling of what's in store in my store!  ;)
The last couple of days have been incredibly difficult ones, for reasons that I may or may not go into at a later time.  Working on this little "re-launch" has been a much-needed source of distraction, and I hope you like the new layout as much as I do.  On a sentimental note -- albeit a very important one -- take the time right now to hold your loved ones close.  Tell them you love them and how much they mean to you every single day.  Because one day, you might not get another chance.  Thank you all for bringing a lot of brightness into my life.  As silly and superficial as this little blogging habit of mine might seem to some, your support means the world to me, especially now.  Be safe, and may your lives be filled with light and love.
